    • disliking the location of the university;

    • expectations of the chosen course of study;

    • difficulties making friends.

It s never been easier
It’s never been easier! content to support new entrants

  • What are we going to do?

    • Using Twoler experiences of engaging students we are inviting students to share their stories

    • Compile a website/online area where these stories can be accessed by everyone coming to UofC

    • Ultimately maybe extending this so that everyone can access it (like TAG).
